Here is the GNU automake home page:

Here are the compressed sources: (1.6MB) (2.3MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

8B1YzW2dd/vcqetLvV6tGYgij9tz1veiAfX41rEYtGk  automake-1.16.5.tar.xz
B70krQimS8FyUM4J7FbpIdY0OQOUPpnM9ju/BwXjRgU  automake-1.16.5.tar.gz

Each SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify automake-1.16.5.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Please report bugs and problems to <>,
and send general comments and feedback to <>.


* Bugs fixed

  - PYTHON_PREFIX and PYTHON_EXEC_PREFIX are now set according to
    Python's sys.* values only if the new configure option
    --with-python-sys-prefix is specified. Otherwise, GNU default values
    are used, as in the past. (The change in 1.16.3 was too incompatible.)

  - consistently depend on install-libLTLIBRARIES.

* Distribution

  - use const for yyerror declaration in bison/yacc tests.
